Meanwhile, United has recovered from a shocking start in which it lost its opening two games.

Now, following three straight wins, it is in the fifth spot.

Many believe that Manchester United vs Arsenal is the first major test of Arteta’s Gunners team after a relatively easy opening set of fixtures.

It has beaten Crystal Palace, struggling Leicester, newly-promoted Bournemouth and Fulham, along with Aston Villa – that last win coming by 2-1 on Wednesday.

United, meanwhile, suffered a surprise 2-1 home defeat by Brighton on the opening day. 

And following that for new coach Erik Ten Hag, there was a 4-0 humiliation at Brentford.

However, there subsequently came a 2-1 defeat of arch-rivals Liverpool which ignited the season.

That has been followed by 1-0 defeats of Southampton and Leicester ahead of Manchester United vs Arsenal.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Prediction

With kick-off at 11:30 am ET on Sunday, DraftKings.com makes Manchester United a narrow favorite for a home win at +160.

Arsenal, moreover, is priced at +165. The draw is +250.

United could hand a debut to their latest big signing, the Brazilian winger Antony who arrived this week from Ten Hag’s former club Ajax for £85 million.

The club has embarked on a major summer rebuilding job under its new boss.

Other new arrivals include the vastly experienced defensive midfielder Casemiro from Real Madrid, center-back Lisandro Martinez – also from Ajax – and full-back Tyrell Malacia, who came from Feyenoord.

The superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has remained at Old Trafford despite seeking a move during the transfer window.

With three wins under his belt and the squad now shaped to his liking, this Manchester United vs Arsenal is being seen as the real potential lift-off for Ten Hag’s reign as coach.

Arsenal’s big summer signing Gabriel Jesus is already proving a hit after his £45 million move from Machester City – with three EPL goals already.

His fellow arrival from City, the full-back Oleksandr Zinchenko, has also settled in well.

Meanwhile, there is a good spread offer of +425 for Manchester United to win by two goals or more (Spread -1.5.)

Cristiano Ronaldo To Score Odds

Despite attempting to quit United last month, Cristiano Ronaldo is the joint favorite to get on the score-sheet first in Manchester United vs Arsenal at +350.

He is joined on those odds by Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus after his impressive start at his new club.

The potential value here though is on Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli, who has scored three times this season but is priced at +700 to find the net first in Manchester United vs Arsenal.

Anthony Martial is United’s second-rated potential goal-getter at +500.

In Manchester United vs Arsenal, the Gunners will be looking for a sixth straight opening win since the season of 147-48 – when it went on to win the title.

But it has won just once in its last 15 visits to Old Trafford.

There was a 3-2 win for Manchester United in the corresponding fixture last December.

However, there was a 3-1 win for Arsenal last April in London.

Manchester United versus Arsenal Pick

This is a significant fixture for both teams as they seek to lay down markers for the coming Autumn.

Upon his quick return to Manchester – where he played for City – Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus will be in the mood to make an impact. And he looks good value to be the first goalscorer at +350.
